    What sort of fees are you specifically referring to? There's not many alternatives that are going to have less fees. Most of the costs have a floor that is controlled by Visa and Mastercard so realistically no matter where you go, there will be similar fees.

    Yeah, Skrill is a good alternative to Paypal.
    I would rather use it if Paypal didn't exist.
    However, if you are looking for more options, this list provides more alternatives that you can choose from.
    It has a comparison of features, pricing, etc.

    Hope it helps.

    It depends on how much you process per month. If you're doing $1k/mn or less, then you should stick with a third-party processor (e.g. Paypal, Skrill, Wepay, 2Checkout, Stripe), but if you're processing more than $1k/mn, then I suggest you look into a traditional merchant account.

    For the third-party processor, I would suggest WePay or Stripe.
    For the traditional merchant account, I would suggest Dharma Merchant Services.

    The best so far that I've tried is bitcoins. I've transact with someone who only pay bitcoins and so I go deep in to it and discover its the the future of online payment. in fact ebay is now considering it.

    Stripe, it's really easy to implement and has great developer documentation, alternatively i would go for braintree, they do pretty much the same thing but I didnt really like their documentation.

    If you want to pay less fee by Paypal, you can change your Paypal account to Commerce.
    The fee will be lesser .
